You didn't list a make or model however most of those are held in place with either two tabs or small screws and have one or two lines to them, most good hardware stores carry them such as ACE and can match it up to what you have.

Does my Craftsman push mower need to be empty of gas before i replace the bad primer bulb?


no it doesn't. the primer bulb is on the air filter. it will just pop off with a pair of pliers and push the new one in with a socket. fairly easy job. good luck

My briggs and stratton 158cc 500series push mower primer button melted from sun. how do i replace it?


There is a tab on either side of the carburetor right where the primer bulb sits. You can depress both of these tabs with a screwdriver and pry out the plastic ring that holds the primer bulb in place. You can purchase a new primer bulb (with a new plastic tab) from a local mower shop or from a small engine repair shop. When you install the new primer bulb, put the rubber bulb in first then put the plastic ring on top and press it in until the tabs click on each side. It should work correctly after the tabs are clicked properly. You can take off the air filter and look into the carburetor to see if the unit is priming correctly. I hope this helps you out.

I need to find someone who can tell me on how to replace a primer bulb on a Robi Till/caltavitor, the one that on it is dry rotted. Can someone please help me? Thank you


If you take a small screwdriver and go between the primer bulb and where it sits you will see a metal ring that holds it in, use the screwdriver to take it out. It sometimes takes a bit ou patience. Before you do any of that look around the outside that housing and look for small tabs that you push on to remove the primer bulb. New ones just snap back in. I think if you take a closer look you will see what I mean. Hope this helps. Best regards and good luck.

I'm trying to replace the fuel lines on the primer button of a small McCullough chain saw. The old ones had dry-rotted and fell off, and I couldn't determine which line goes where. My first configuration...


The primer is just a small pump--it is supposed to draw fresh fuel through the carburetor and expel it back into the tank. There are also just two lines on the carburetor--the upper one should go straight to the fuel tank and filter, the other goes to the intake side of the pump. Just pick a port of the primer (remove the other line for the moment), and try to pump fuel into the bulb (make sure the bulb is not decayed as well)--it should fill with fuel if you have the correct connection--if not, just place the line from the carburetor on the other primer port and try to pump again. If still no fuel, something is plugged in the carburetor or the fuel filter. Hope this helps!

I have a Craftsman Gold 6.0 mulching mower with a B&S engine on it that has been idle for about 10 years. It was only lightly used before that and I ran the gas tank dry before putting it away. Today...


Sounds like the primer bulb dry rotted from sitting &/or the float is stuck in carb. If gas is indeed leaking from bulb. It will need to be replaced. While it is apart, clean carb inside & out with spray carb cleaner.

Whether you're talking about the primer bulb or gas filter you will have to get with your local outdoor power equipment specialist to order the proper part for your particular mower and engine size.

Need diagram/instructions on how to replace primer bulb on briggs and stratton push lawn mower My primer bulb has busted so I'm trying to replace. Don't know how to get the old one out and replace.


Unless they have changed, all you have to do is unscrew the old primer bulb and screw the new one on in it's place. The primer is composed of the rubber bulb with a metal or plastic ring with threads on it where it connects in the fuel system.
